For decades, Spider-Man has been one of Marvel’s best-loved superheroes. The friendly neighborhood web-slinger has spawned multiple spin-offs and alternate versions, as well as film franchises, animated series, and countless merchandise. However, Peter Parker very nearly didn’t make it into the pages of the Marvel universe.
When Stan Lee and Steve Ditko first pitched the character to publisher Martin Goodman, he hated the idea. Goodman believed that readers (especially children) hated spiders, so they would hate a character with spider powers. It was a reasonable enough assumption – after all, spiders aren’t exactly winning any prizes for best-loved-critter. However, the character was given a chance in the comics and became a huge hit, leading Goodman to eat his words… and Spider-Man to become one of the world’s most famous superheroes.
